FULHAM legend Barry Hayles insists his former club are in good hands under Martin Jol, in spite of the recent dip in form.
The Whites are gearing up for a vital home match against West Ham at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night and the popular former striker believes fans should have confidence in the manager to keep them away from a relegation dogfight.
“Fulham will turn the corner. They have a good squad,” Hayles said. “Martin Jol is a great manager, and he is safe in his job. His main players just need to stand up and be counted.”
Hayles who signed for Fulham in November 1998 for £2m pounds, and went on to score 58 goals in 219 appearances in five years at the club, has the club's interests close at heart.
“Being at Fulham, was the best years of my career. We won two consecutive promotions, and I got to play in the Premier League,” said the 41-year-old, who is currently taking coaching badges and playing for St Albans.
